WRD 206 Short reports Do’s of Writing an Effective Short Report Follow proper memo format See Johnson-Sheehan, p. 288-290 Incorporate the appropriate “moves” to your introduction from the six described by Johnson-Sheehan on p. 445-48. Write an effective introductory paragraph or paragraphs. As in the Complaint letter, an introduction should do the following: identify the subject, offer any necessary context or background, state your purpose, state your main point. An introduction in a longer document should also make clear the organizational scheme of the report. Use some sort of document design technique to make your key points clear Examples: subheadings, lists, or tables. Scrutinize your headings headings don’t have to be just one or two words: aim to make your key points clear in the headings. If your headings are bolded, underlined, or otherwise emphasized, they do not need colons after them. Frontload your paragraphs and sections.
